(East St. Louis, IL) — Transportation officials are admitting mistakes led to a large traffic pile-up last week in East St. Louis. The Illinois Department of Transportation apparently forgot to notify the public about a construction project on Interstate 64 on Monday, causing the backup. The project was put on hold later last week because even with the notice, motorists were apparently still not finding alternate routes.
